Zen Garden Restaurant is a place to go on a sunday and enjoy garden sun and different options of food; continental and oriental are the main option. It is nice to go there with children as they have a place to play while parents eating.

An excellent variety of dishes listed in two separate menus, Chinese and regular European dishes. The food was delicious and beautiully presented with an equally friendly, polite and cheerful service. Fresh juices are a must. There is also a bakery/coffee shop for those wishing for snacks and the bakery sells fresh pastries and breads. Seating choices are great, one can... More

We had a pleasant lunch at the Zen Garden on a sunny Saturday afternoon. The place is stunning and there is a nice crowd. We found the food average: I do not recommend the pizza (tough and tasteless) while the dim-sums are good (but expensive). Overall would not go back for the food per-sé but maybe for the nice patio.

With its beautiful interior decor and well manicured outside seating area, Zen Garden is a very popular place to hang out. However, it is not a cheap affair. Nairobi is awash with trendy high priced places and this is one that is here to stay. The food is very good and the flavours and spices are well balanced. They have... More
